A Ramadhaan With Muhammadur Rasoolullah

When you love a person you want be like him. This is especially and spectacularly true when it comes to the love of Muslims towards their beloved Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam. To quote Ustadh (late) Khurram Murad,

“Indeed, never in history has a man influenced mankind, even beyond his death, so deeply and so pervasively as he has. He brings light and peace to countless hearts and lives. They love him more dearly than their own selves. In him they find their greatest source of inspiration and guidance. He is the ultimate norm and the perfect example for them…….”

The upcoming Ramadhaan will bring in its wake yet another opportunity for the Muslims worldwide to relive and demonstrate, once again, their unflinching love and reverence to the greatest man ever. Continue reading

A Letter to all Muslim Brothers…about Sisters!

Note 1: Sisters also to read this 🙂 InshaaAllah. Note 2: This is a re-post of a 2012 article.

Dear brothers in Islam, Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah.

This is to request all Muslim men – husbands, fathers, fathers-in-law, sons and brothers – to consider these two principal verses of the Glorious Qur’an and appreciate the graciousness of Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’aala.

Salah (Prayer) and Sawm (Fasting) are two most important pillars of Islam. The interesting point to note is that Allah, while enjoining these obligatory acts of worship, uses a particular phrase that needs our attention, and because of which I said we must appreciate the graciousness of Allah, and of course the humane aspect of Islam.  Continue reading

Making the Most of Ramadhaan

As Ramadhaan is round the corner, you may come across lots of books/articles on internet about Fasting, Zakah etc.

Of all the books, I would rate this short and sweet write-up by one of the most prolific writers of modern times, late Ustadh Khurram Murad*, as No. 1 – the topmost book ever written on the subject ‘Making the Most of Ramadhaan’. 

I request all my readers to please take time to read this 34-page book well before the coming of the blessed month, Inshaa’Allah. Even if you have read this book before, no problem read it again as Reminder Benefits Muslims.  Continue reading

Eid in the House of the Messenger of Allah

Dear brothers and sisters in Islam, Assalamu Alaikum.

The purpose behind this post/repost is to let everyone know, Inshaaallah, that 1) Having halal fun is very much allowed in Islam, and 2) Going to the extremes is not the way of the Prophet sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam.

On a joyful day in Al-Madeenah An-Nabawiyyah, and on the morning of a happy ‘Eed, the house of the Prophet, sal-lal-laahu-alaihi-wa-sallam, witnessed the scenes of the celebration of ‘Eed under the supervision of the best of human beings: Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) Everyone joined in to celebrate the occasion of ‘Eed and all were keen to let the noble Prophet (peace be upon him) witness their celebrations because they loved him the most and held him the utmost esteem.

“Woe to those who read them without reflection”

“so woe to those who read them without reflecting upon them”. This statement which is part of a Sahih Hadeeth should serve as a warning to all those who read the glorious Qur’an without reflecting upon its verses or pondering over them.

While we Muslims read a lot from the Book of Allah in the blessed month of Ramadhaan, I pray to Almighty Allah to shower upon us the grace of wisdom to understand and reflect over the teachings of His glorious and gracious Book. Aameen.
